Happy New Year to one and all.
I hope everyone has big plans for the coming year. Just be sure you haven’t gotten too comfortable where you are in life. You should never stop learning, never stop enjoying new experiences, and never stop having fun. Life is way too short to just sit there comfortable in your situation.
Hopefully this year I will be adding lots of new technical content, so stay tuned. If you are in the Java fold, the JavaOne Call for Papers is now open. Get your submissions in before the 1/31/2005 deadline.
Also, 2004 is over. The W2’s and other tax documents should start pouring in. If you are going to be owed a refund, file as soon as possible. Uncle Sam has been partying on your excess tax money all year, so be sure and get it back. You need it more than the government anyway, they’ll just spend it.
